Manufacturing Automation and Robotic Systems (MARS) Lab caters to both
academic research as well as industry sponsored research. Academically,
it is used as a teaching tool for automation and robotics based classes
where hands on robotic instruction is encouraged at both the graduate
undergraduate level. Industry funded research projects involve
workcell studies using state of the art hardware and software tools.
provide not just additional educational and research opportunities to
student, but also provide valuable research to the sponsoring
This helps to bring the university and corporate resources together in
a way that both can benefit from. The real beneficiaries however are
students who leave better prepared to serve in the fields of robotics,
manufacturing, automation and controls in industry.
